Digital Leica M8 / M8.2 / M9 / M-E /Mono / M10 aka "M" Discussions about the Leica M8 /M 8.2 / M9 / M9-P/ M-E / M Monochrom / M10 aka "M": Leica digital M mount rangefinder cameras. Naming the new digital M the "Leica M" is VERY unfortunate as it will only confuse newbies with other Leica M cameras of the the past. Happily there is room for confusion with only the past 59 years of Leica M production ... since Leica introduced the Leica M system in 1953. All Hail for the Leica Marketing Department learning Leica M history!

Yes, the Aussies all the way Seriously more we can see and learn, the better
Kristian, that group portrait shot at 10,000 ISO is stunning. It is this reason alone that I have the M-M.

Ordered from a Melbourne dealer just 2 weeks before it arrived. There was even 1 left over that sold one day after mine.

I haven't had as much of a chance to play with mine as I'd like but here are a couple I liked. They are taken with a Jupiter 50mm lens (with made in USSR written on it) but I thought they came out ok!

Wow! Truly great photographs. Great moments, lovely look. Think personally the MM images are more due to good eye and quick finger.

I am loving the shots posted in this thread!

I reckon my Jupiter-8 and a Monochrom would be a very happy marriage...

Amen. How is the weather where you are, Charles? I was a little surprised to see the three girls sunbathing... would have thought it was still a little cool. (I'm envious of y'all coming into spring, while we're heading into fall...)

Lovely images...

Finally picked up my Monochrom. So, what do I think?

Bloody incredible. Most of my photos are family-oriented (don't post those pics on the internet), but I can't quite believe this is a digital camera. The files are so clean, so beautifully graduated, so sharp - they remind me of the Kodak Technical Pan that I've been so quickly running low on.

So, without delay, here are two non-family shots from my first day with the MM. The second, believe it or not, is 2500 with no noise reduction! Holy cow batman; what a camera!

Nice photos! Lovely tones.

You're a bit cheeky posing that lovely lady beside what looks like a bag of garbage!

Thanks Jeff! I think that's my favourite one I've taken so far. Must get out and take some more.

It is a bag of garbage. Pretty sure it says something about St. Tropez...

These are starting to look really good - a possible replacement for film?

Were those taken in Australia, or are you travelling, Kristian? The first one, especially, is exceptional.

I like it also since it is not so harsh as most of the others: this one has nice greys. Seems that in many pics the MM is a bit to dark in dark spaces...

Thanks Jeff The weather here on the coast is really nice now.
Stewart, beautiful gentle tones throughout the shots!
Urban alchemist, congrats on the M-M. Love the shot of the girl in the street.
Kristian, the last set of shots are just amazing in content, tone and PP'ing. The work flow you seemed to have really nailed with the M-M! Also congrats on the shots posted from Melbourne Fashion Week. Very nice.

Another shot from the other day with 24 Lux, and LR4.
